In a word Awesome ! Even the 87 performance is a huge improvement over stock. The best performance wise is the 91 performance tune with the MDS turned off. I noticed you have an 11, did you get the tuner for your year ? Have they finally cracked the encryption code on the 11s.

yeah..... what the other guys said. We've all been waiting and waiting for programmers for '11+ and no one has one out yet. I'd say your sales rep lied to you.

I had to check! Superchips web site does not allow you to select 2011 or newer.

For awhile there, I thought the 2011+ members had a great option.

Who ever sold you on the Cortex either knows something that even Superchips doesn't know, or made a mistake.

^^^^ I did the same as well and could not select 2011+. I do feel bad for you however it looks like the sales rep you dealt with is not fully informed. The SC cortex is a great tuner so when they do crack the code for the 2011+ I'd say go for it. Hope you can get your money back.

Guys I was in touch with Super Chips and ask when the new programers would be coming out for the 2011 5.7 Hemi's. Well to my displeasure the teck informed me that because of the set up Dodge used from Fiat that the programing industry is more tat likely never going to produce a true "Power Programer for the 2011. Hope Dode regrets buying into Fiat ! If Dodge was smart they whould stick to USA companies for their parts.
Also in my opinion they would be smart on their part to figure out on their own how to come up with a programer before the Dodge Truck falls from the performance world.
